Bellini's was born
out of founder Sonia Bellini’s desire to help others connect with their own unique beauty. For years, she’d been frustrated with the impossible beauty standards dictated by the media; Bellini’s was her way of doing something about it. When Bellini’s first opened its doors in 1993 as Bellini’s European Day Spa, Portland had never seen anything like it. The spa offered innovative skin treatments and the very best skin care brands sourced from around the world. Sonia’s approach was grounded in Old World, European tradition; the results were nothing short of transformative. Through word of mouth, Bellini’s quickly gained a large following of loyal clients – many who have been coming ever since.
Sonia Bellini, Owner, Aesthetician
Two decades later, Sonia decided it was time to evolve. Realizing that fragrance was another way for people to express their individual beauty, she created an entirely new beauty experience that includes a parfumerie filled with hard-to-find scents from modern fragrance artists. And with that a name change to Bellini’s Skin + Parfumerie. Besides Bellini’s skin treatments and intoxicating fragrances, they also offer artisan candles, luxurious body products, and many other must-haves for both women and men. While many of the brands we carry are exclusive, our attitude isn’t. Within our comfortable, welcoming space, you’ll truly find something for everyone. So come in, say hello, and explore our sensory playground. We can’t wait to help you discover your most beautiful self.
MEET THE TEAM
Kelly Moore, Aesthetician
Kelly joined us at Bellini’s in August of 2017 and she brought with her a wealth of knowledge. She has been involved in aesthetics for over 24 years, having been in the beauty industry since 1992. Kelly grew up in California and moved to Portland to attend PSU. From there she went back to California for aesthetics training. After completion she returned to Portland, working at multiple well known Northwest Portland Spas before she opened her own business in 2003 which ran through 2012.
Since then she has been in medical aesthetic offices but decided to leave that side of aesthetics and join Bellini’s. Kelly’s favorite part about working at Bellini’s is the team of women that she works with, along with the amazing products and beautiful atmosphere. She enjoys working with all skin types but has a special interest in anti-aging. Her hobbies include spending time with her daughter, Bella, reading, swimming, and spending quality time with her friends and family.
“Invest in your skin it is going to represent you for a very long time.”
